A hot stone massage uses smooth, volcanic basalt stones which are then heated with warm water or a hot steam bath. The hot massage stones vary in size and shape so they will fit better onto the various chakras or energy points of the body.
As the heat of the hot stone is placed onto the body and coupled with long, firm massage strokes, the client can almost immediately feel warmth, calmness, and relaxation seeping through the body. The heat from the stones helps to soothe nerves, relax muscles and the body and lull the mind to a gentle serenity.
Hot stones in combination with Swedish massage techniques help promote deeper relaxation and tension relief. Basalt stones are heated with water to achieve the perfect temperature and are used to melt away stiffness and improve circulation. Your massage therapists use the hot stones as an extension of their hands to provide you with a customized massage that relaxes and renews.
